    Book with confidence

    Very nice place in a super location. Easy stroll into the centre or to the riverside. Staff were super helpful, breakfast was great. Despite being part of a bland corporate chain there was just enough quirkiness about this place to set it apart. The price was good and the overall experience was great. Just a shame the bar was closed due to Covid 19 :-) but overall I have no hesitation in recommending this place.

    Breakfast was delicious, good offering of fresh fruits, breads, jams and jelly. The door to our room was damaged and should be repaired. All was good.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good hotel in good location. Needs updating.

    There are very few hotels to choose from in the area. This hotel is in a good location near the airport, town center and roads/ routs further north. The service was very good, the staff are friendly and willing to accommodate needs/ requests. The building is currently undergoing some building/ maintenance work on the outside so its covered in scaffolding and the drop off/ pick up area out the front is closed. The restaurant is OK and has a small menu. I ate there one night and the food was good. But there are a lot of good quality restaurants over the road in the square. The rooms are clean but could do with some updating as a lot of the furniture and fittings are worn and tiered. The bathrooms are in much need of updating and renovation however they are clean. Overall a good hotel that could be much better. In a good location.

    Good location. Temporary rerouting of street outside hotel makes it necessary to cross street for taxi. Restaurant service in the evening excellent - as well as the food - even though a bit expensive compared to other restaurants.

    Central location

    A very central hotel with a decent gym. Most taxis use this hotel as a waiting spot so it’s easy to find.

    A night stay at Scandic

    I was expecting high from the hotel based on its big name and good location. I was not well-received as they put me in a small noisy room and near the area of reconstruction. But I complained after one hour and they moved me to a much better room that made my night. I was still upset because why not we got the good service at first place and what about the other guests who could not the language or coming for one night stay!! Good breakfast though and helpful people in the kitchen.

    Basic, even on Swedish standards

    Basic accommodation and breakfast assortment, very simple EVEN on Swedish standards. You know what you are getting when booking a scandic hotel, but this one seemed tired and lacked the sharpness I expect from this chain. Construction was going on during our stay, but there was next to no noise issues. Wifi was pretty good though. It was a solid OK overall.
